Portland tennis team falls to Haslett



Joel Cross:Portland played its first dual match of the season Thursday night at Haslett. The end result wasn't what the Raiders were looking for. However, they played a lot of good matches and showed they had what it takes to play with a top team that is in a higher division. I was really impressed with how three of the matches played out. Alex Russman is playing singles for the first time this year and managed to take his match to 4 and 3 against a very good player. Alex is so athletic that he is really able to hit balls that most players would just give up on. 2 and 3 doubles were also really impressive.They both managed to push Haslett to a 3rd set. The doubles teams really seem to be learning how to take control of a point. It's great to see them poaching balls at the net and making their opponents work to win points.

The Raiders will play next when they host Whitehall, Parma Western, and Big Rapids on 8/29
